Apple releases it’s largest update in 19 years, faster, smoother, more memory, more battery, Moreno advanced
Apple’s i0S 10.3 update has just been released and iPhone users may notice their treasured handsets are running a little faster once it’s installed.
The Cupertino-based company has just rolled out a huge update, with the new Apple File System (APFS) replacing its 19-year-old file system HFS+.
Apple has advised iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users to backup their devices before installing the major update.
Early installers of i0S 10.3 have reported instantaneously having more storage on their devices, reportedly as a result of the switch to APFS.
All you need to do is go to Settings> General> Software Update.
Apple engineer Renaud Lienhart tweeted that users of the next-generation file system would feel their iPhone running a lot more smoothly.
“iOS 10.3 feels ‘snappier’ because many animations were slightly tweaked and shortened, for the better,” he tweeted.
Apple has also introduced a number of new features on iOS 10.3, including the ability to locate AirPods using Find my iPhone and more ways to use Siri with payment, ride booking and automaker apps.
